In "The Crusades Through Arab Eyes", Amin Maalouf has sifted through the works of a score of contemporary Arab chroniclers of the Crusades, eyewitnesses and often participants in the events. He retells their stories in their own vivacious style, giving us a vivid portrait of a...

Presenting the second part as I name it âScroll IIâ, of Rose + Cross Chronicles. The first part is the historical account of the Order ever since its foundation in 1317, by Pope John XXII of Avignon. Though he persecuted alchemists, he was himself an alchemist in great secrecy and even wrote about it as on Transmutation. This is the history never told before by historians except Roger Caro (nickname Pierre Phoebus) in the French language, books (two of them) reprinted and on sales today in...

The Secret History of the Mongols , translation, study, and scholarly notes by Francis Woodman Cleaves (Cambridge, Mass, 1982), in 342 pdf pages. Publication of this work was delayed until 1982, although the translation was completed in 1956. The core of the History is believed to date from the mid-13th century. It is ironic that whatever "secrets" this work contained were revealed already in the Middle Ages, since the text has survived not in Mongolian characters, but in a medieval...
